Hello all, Just wanted to say I picked up Wings Ue and it is truly awesome game. I've also been following many of your posts in the last few weeks, especially the challenges. I have also been watching quite a bit of your utube vids nice! especially enjoy yours ACE PILTO, love the commentary on my second monitor while I'm flying lol. I also quite enjoy all the paint schemes with a special shout out to BANJOMAN'S Grim Reaper=). I've been a big fan of WWI sim since days of Red Baron which I spent more hours on than I could count. I am also a big military history buff in general,almost any era interests me. Anyway I am impressed in general by this community thus far in how civil and helpful everyone is so I decided to join and am looking forward to reading everyone's posts and enjoying the WOFF sim even more thoroughly. GREAT JOB OBD !!! I know drinks on the new guy! lol.

Thanks old bean, I really need to get my proverbial in one sock and make more videos. Sidetracked by Kingdom Come Deliverance at the moment. Enjoy your stay in our little WW1 time machine.

Thank You. Did have quick question on how to add a thread to followed list? I was also wondering when you go to enlist a pilot it asks you at bottom of log what skill level.rookie or veteran. What exactly does this affect? Is it the combat autopilot skill?

Yes, your pilot's autopilot skill level.

Ok so if I select Rookie will my pilot ever become a veteran or am I rookie forever. (I wondered why I always got saddled with the old nag when new aircraft are available)

I don't think that the autopilot skill level setting affects which plane you get.

All of the historical aces in your squad will get the best planes first, regardless of rank or number of victories. If there are any left over they will be assigned to other pilots based on rank.

One of my favorite things about JJJ65's Mission Editor is that I can override this situation and select my own plane.

C:\Users\Your Logon Name\Documents\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields...is where it should be using the K key pal.

If using mods (SweetFx) then normally the print screen button is used and the shots will be in the main WOFF folder

Hi pal,not sure ive never taken a picture of my pilot etc..I think for that you may have to use something like Faststone capture or some other screen capture software. I do know that K ( without mods) or Printscreen ( with mods) will take photos whilst in the main flight game screen..Maybe someone else can help NightFlyer out with this guys?

Try using Shadowplay's screenshot hotkey if you have an Nvidia card?

The “k” key works in sim only (when CFS3.exe is running the show). To take screenshots in the shell (when WOFF.exe is running) use any screen capturing software. Even the snipping tool that comes with Windows will work.
